Possum Magic

Mem Fox and Julie Vivas’ beloved picture book Possum Magic has enchanted children for decades and Monkey Baa Theatre Company brings the paper and ink to life on stage once again! Using a clever, nuanced palette of live action, stage magic, an original soundscape, elements of puppetry and projected animation, Monkey Baa’s award-winning creative team have translated the whimsical world of the book to a live experience for audiences 3–8 years (and their families).

Young ones can also attend the ‘Possum Magic Drama Workshop’, a school holiday workshop with Monkey Baa Theatre in the Opera House’s Centre for Creativity. Here, children aged 5-9 years old will be able to experience the magic of theatre in a hands-on environment.
